Employers increasingly regard training as an investment in people. But companies often do not fully understand the challenge of combining a career with study and individuals may underestimate the demands of part-time study.
Study Skills for Managers has been developed with all managers in mind. It emphasizes the needs of those beginning a part-time MBA or Diploma, but is also relevant to all managers concerned with
self development and with keeping up-to-date.
The author brings together practical ideas and advice for busy managers wishing to improve the effectiveness of their self-development and study skills. The book covers a wide range of topics including: information and memory; diagrams as an aid to thinking and learning; reading and report writing; time management; and stress management.
Readers are encouraged to test and develop their own skills at every stage and to assess their own strengths and weaknesses. A series of exercises increases the reader's self-confidence and builds links between the world of work and the world of management learning.
